    Pros

    Khoros has an amazing culture: catering four days a week, monthly happy hours, flex schedules, volunteer opportunities and lots of fun perks. They have a management team who truly cares and will work with you to build your career.

    Cons

    The merger has been tough and working out of three offices in Austin can be difficult - but there is a light at the end of the tunnel with the new office in September.

      I have been working at Khoros full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Smart, awesome people to work with. Great flexibility and freedom— working from home, working remotely, and unlimited vacation. Management trusts you to get things done. Work life balance is wonderful. Free good catered lunch 4 days/week. Some creative and fun opportunities in the work itself. Work hard, and this team will reward you with praise and promotions.

      Cons

      This company recently went through a merger, and the culture has shifted rapidly under the new owners (Vista Equity Partners). Transparency is decreasing, perks are declining, and employee freedoms are slowly being curtailed.

      Advice to Management

      Please fight to retain the great culture, work environment, compensation and benefits we used to have.

      I have been working at Khoros full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great community of people that believe in the work they do & are welcoming! Lots of autonomy to design & deliver on the work need to do in many roles. Evolving culture for the better to be more inclusive of people but more so of ideas to support change leading to innovation.

      Cons

      Strategy, communication & cohesive disconnect between executive, senior (directors) to managers & their teams or department teams disconnected from other operational partners in the org. Feels like we're doing lots of rework and/or being impatient of other keys partners.

      Advice to Management

      Take a step back to evaluate the bigger picture of in process operational initiatives then ask "what is the impact on an employee?" Give each other useable feedback so we can move forward to transform. Be open to changing what it looks like to achieve our strategic deliverables and their timelines.

      I worked at Khoros full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Not many left, perhaps once the two platforms are combined but as of now it's not good. The new Austin office will be really nice but no longer downtown. Good luck if you rely on public transportation.

      Cons

      Life was great pre merger. New leadership doesn't know what's going on with its workforce. Everyone from management to your top performers are leaving by the day. I guess this is what happens after a merger, but the culture and excitement that there was before the merger is non-existent.

      Advice to Management

      Stop firing your best people

        Pros

        Hard to say. Everything has gone downhill so fast.

        Cons

        Truly an example of an org change (merger) having a profound negative impact on two companies. Employees are afraid to give internal feedback (even on surveys) because of potential repercussions including firing. The product is becoming more and more unstable. There are major outages. Even with all the employee attrition, raises are still hard to come by.
